Hi Guys,
 Well, had a major setback shortly after last post, ended up in emergency room overnight.
 I have never felt so bad in my life (even after busting 6 ribs I didn't feel too bad)
 Got something wrong with right ear/side of face. (docs don't really have a clue, best guess is unknown cause vertigo  ::))
Got bunch of intravenous drugs pumped into me then scans and x-rays
Spent 3 days in bed, slept for most of it.
Still having problem but now I'm just dealing with it (and pretty pissed off)
 Good news though,
I did manage to finish polishing rear rim last week and I did most of work on hub
Wife been letting me sit in front of TV with emery cloth and metal polish 'cause I been sick ;D
 Almost ready to machine some slots in it (this is going to be best looking Honda hub ever 8))
It's about impossible to make them look good because they are a weird shape that just 'looks heavy'
 Drilled cam cover and clutch cover but haven't finished machining or tapped holes yet plus, I have to polish clutch cover (and generator cover).
The clutch operating /sprocket cover is finished
 Managed to misplace the bag of nuts/bolts for cam cover/cyl head so that's not fitted.

 Pretty much had to buy wife a new car, its in 'Our Cages'
I just can't be bothered to work on cars with so many bike projects going on and unknown health problems (plus the known ones  :()
 All for now, going to work on something  ;D :D

Damn Man, sorry to hear that. I had a thought, have you been tested for Menaire's syndrome? (not sure if I spelled that right) My father had it. The symptoms sound exactly like what you are going through, unexplained vertigo etc. It came on him in his late 50's and it took the doctors a couple years to figure out what it was. Might be worth looking into if you haven't already. My Dad ended up having "minor" Brain surgery (minor in quotes as there is no minor brain surgery) they detached a nerve that was the cause, it would act up effecting his inner ear and causing the problem. He has been fine since, for about the last 10 years or so. I encourage you to research it a bit and run it by your doc.

Feel well soon and lets see the work!!

that sucks man. its good to see your still getting some work done. I cant wait to see whats been happening inside the home of a great bike builder.

when you said you drilled your clutch cover for a second i thought you were running a dry clutch and got excited  :D

where is the line running from? im thinking from the oil sump?

Wow PJ, I don't even know what to say. I hope you feel better and the docs can get it straightened out.

 Going to  measure opening /closing points and degree in the cam (haven't decided on timing yet, at least where it opens)
 Will use the numbers to make a 'proper' exhaust.
 I did finish cleanup and valve seat cutting on one of the Yamaha V-Max heads I've had here since last April  (one down, one to go  ;))
 Pretty much had to buy wife a new car, its in 'Our Cages'

+1 I know of several people who have it.  It can cause stroke like symptoms but nothing permanent at all.  Main symptoms are above the neck.

Glad you can still tinker PJ.
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Well that explains the face!

in all seriousness...I do hope this comes to a close soon. medical impediment both sucks AND blows (neither in a friendly way)

Hi All,
Thanks for messages and suggestions, going to write it all down and ask doc about it next week (appointment on 15th)

 I did some major carving on rear hub and brake plate.
 Hub looks real good even without paint.
 It is going to be totally awesome (really)
Got a few holes to drill and tap then I'll take pics.
 I'm actually pretty excited about it as I can picture exactly what it's going to look like, and, its going to be good (and you lot know I don't get excited about bikes easy  :D)

 Not sure about brake plate, will try it out after making an internal brace (if there is enough room)
 It should be of interest to Microsoft (has 'windows'  ;D)
 did a lot of carving, all the internal and external ribs are still in place, but not much else.
 Even carved around center (as its only needed to locate on axle, shouldn't have any torque applied)
I'm glad I bought a spare,(or two  ;)) just in case I don't like it.
May drill one to sort of match front, will have to assemble before making decision.

PJ
